Opening night party for performer KT Sullivan

(CAPE MAY, NJ) -- The Mad Batter, 19 Jackson Street, is hosting an after-show opening night party for KT Sullivan on Friday, April 29. Hors d'oeuvres are provided, with a cash bar, but no other costs, to come and meet this lovely Broadway and cabaret performer and her musical arranger and accompanist, Jon Weber. 

       KT is only performing for two nights in Cape May: April 29 and 30 at 8:00 p.m., at The First Presbyterian Church, 500 Hughes St. in Cape May. 

     The spark for "Rhyme, Women & Song" began with KT's acclaimed salute to one of Broadway's greatest lyricists, Dorothy Fields.  Now, KT expands her vision to display the work of Dorothy's peers and heirs who have continued to enrich the Great American Songbook. To the inimitable Dorothy's "Sunny Side of the Street" and "The Way You Look Tonight," she adds

Carole King's "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You."  Also included are Edna Pinkard's "Kitchen Man," a spicy song from the 1920's made famous by Bessie Smith, and Carolyn Leigh's "The Best is Yet to Come," with music by Cy Coleman, that became Frank Sinatra's signature piece.  From Mary Rodgers comes "The Boy From…..," a clever parody of "The Girl from Ipanema," with music by Stephen Sondheim, written for "The Mad Show." Jon Weber is musical arranger and accompanist.  John Webber assists on bass.

     Tickets are only $30 to this exciting event and may be purchased through East Lynne Theater Company's website www.eastlynnetheater.org or by calling 609-884-5898. Those who wish to see KT at The Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel, 59 W. 44th St., New York City from May 3-28, may call (212) 419-9331 or go online to www.algonquinhotel.com.
